Prospect Review #2 - Number 31-40

We're currently taking a look at the top 50 Dodger prospects as rated by going into the season to see how they fared during 2007. Today we'll examine Nos. 31-40.

Prospect Review #2 - Number 31-40 40- Wesley Wright, lhp. Who is the really Wesley Wright- the one that was only 1-2, 9.18 with Las Vegas or the one that went 6-2, 2.49 with Jacksonville? Probably a little bit of both.

39- Ryan Rogowski, of. He can run the bases as well as anybody else in the organization, stealing 39 in 46 attempts with Inland Empire. But he managed only a .253 average.

38- Tommy Perez, rhp. After shining in the Instructional League, had a recurrence of an elbow injury. Subsequent surgery put him out for the season.

37- Brent Leach, lhp. Made into a closer, he started brilliantly for Inland Empire with an 0.45 ERA and four saves. Then a muscular problem in his chest put him on the sidelines for the rest of the year.

36- Cody White, lhp. Once considered a lackadaisical worker, he came on strongly, going 8-5, 2.48 with Great Lakes, then 2-3, 3.90 with Inland Empire to move up in everyone's estimation.

35- Kyle Orr, 1b. The fourth-round draft choice in 2006 debuted in the Gulf Coast League where he worked hard to tighten his swing and learn to take the ball the other way. They're going to have to be patient for he managed only a .228 mark with just three home runs.

34-Casey Hoorelbeke, rhp. Moved up to Las Vegas where he experienced the problems of pitching there that affects just about everybody. Worked a lot, getting in 63 games with a 4-4, 5.55 mark and two saves.

33- James McDonald, rhp. Perhaps no other player advanced his cause as much as he did. Starting slowly with Inland Empire, he came on for a 6-7, 3.95 record, then went up to Jacksonville where he dominated with a 7-2, 1.71 performance.

32- Cory Dunlap, 1b. He, on the other hand, is traveling in reverse. Hit a lackluster .226 with seven homers and 60 RBI with Jacksonville and is considered to have a bad attitude.

31- Javy Guerra, rhp. In first full season back from elbow surgery was very inconsistent. Record was only 6-9 with a 6.27 ERA, yet showed good stuff to strike out 121 in 117.2 innings.
